After Randall is reported dead in a car accident, his business partner Bart Manners and golddigging widow are shocked to learn about the inheritance. Bart is sure it's a scam and sets out to learn Janie's angle. Meanwhile, the citizens of Lawndale turn on her, convinced she's no longer their kind of people. So Janie heads to New York and accept the bequeath, and teach everyone a few lessons in basic human kindness.
